Thank you for visiting our website and allowing us the opportunity to present our services. While selling your Austin area home can seem like a daunting process, it can actually be a relatively straightforward and stress-free endeavor when you partner with a dedicated and experienced Realtor. There are a lot of moving parts in any real estate transaction, and selling a home is no exception. We've developed a successful system for selling Austin area homes quickly, efficiently and for top dollar all while providing a level of service and commitment that you will only find with a boutique real estate firm.
When selling a home in the Austin area, you should consider three key factors in making the process a success. The first and arguably most important is price. This may seem like an obvious point, but pricing your home correctly the first time can mean the difference between a sale that happens within 30-60 days, or one that drags on for months. It's also the element of selling a home that most for sale by owner properties, and even some agent-listed properties get wrong. At Ravenwood Realty, we pride ourselves on being "straight-shooters", to use a decidedly Texan term. As a smaller company, our job is not to chase every single seller and add listings by promising an unrealistic sale price just to outdo "the other guys". Our clients and prospective clients can always count on an accurate and unbiased assessment of their home's value in today's market. Anything else would be wasting your valuable time as well as our own.
The second key factor to consider in selling your Austin area home is how to get your property noticed by the largest possible number of prospective buyers. Having an experienced and dedicated Realtor working for you is the first step. From pre-inspection, professional photography, virtual tours and staging your home, to yard signs, open houses and social media marketing, you can rest assured that we are working constantly to get maximum exposure for your listing.
The third key factor to consider in making your home's sale a success is what we like to call "seller engagement", or the degree to which you're ready and willing to participate in making your listing as desirable as possible. As a seller, consider yourself as one critical part of a team, with your Realtor being the other part. Be prepared to make any minor repairs your home might require up front, rather than waiting until a prospective buyer demands them as part of their offer. Replacing worn or dated paint and carpet can add thousands of dollars to your home's value, and can often be a critical factor in the buyer's first impression of your home. Professional cleaning, organizing and storing any items that could be considered clutter, and managing your pets during showings are just a few of the essential tasks. Your Ravenwood Realty agent will take the time to assess your home and provide a list of these and other helpful suggestions for maximizing your home's market value.
